Explain the reason why it is important for you to know that person
Sample Answer:

I would like to talk about a person whom I recently met in the nearby garden yesterday evening along with my young son. I had gone for an evening walk since it is a part of my routine life to go for a stroll. While I was walking, I saw an old man with his grandson. The talk actually began when his grandson started playing with my son. We talked about the recent times, how it has changed and what it would be like in the future. Apart from those philosophical thoughts, we were also sharing with each other many stories about experiences from personal and professional life. I really would like to know more about him, his family and more importantly, his past work life through which I would like to gain some knowledge and wisdom. As I do not have any elder person in my house, being a small family, I would love to talk to him in the future as well and would like our friendly relationship to prosper.
